[PEM04-07] NASA Heliophysics and the Science of Space Weather

★Invited papers

*Steven W Clarke1 (1.NASA Headquarters)

NASA formulates and implements a national research program for understanding
the Sun and its interactions with the Earth and the solar system and how these
phenomena impact life and society. This research provides theory, data, and
modeling development services to national and international space weather efforts
utilizing a coordinated and complementary fleet of spacecraft, called the
Heliophysics System Observatory (HSO), to understand the Sun and its interactions
with Earth and the solar system, including space weather. NASA’s space-based
observational data and modeling efforts have provided significant contributions to
the science of space weather. Current and future space weather research will
provide key information to improve the ability of the United States and its
international partners to prepare, avoid, mitigate, respond to, and recover from the
potentially devastating impacts of space-weather events.
